#科技头条#【揭秘Apple Pay】Apple Pay是苹果全新发布的移动支付系统。通过NFC芯片和 TouchID 技术就可实现便捷的支付。在人们最关心的安全问题上，苹果表示不会保存用户的支付记录。此外，当设备丢失后，用户可通过Find my iPhone 服务来关闭所有的支付功能，此操作不会冻结这张银行卡，因为信息并不存储在设备上。目前，Apple Pay已与美国主要的银行合作，并且全美有超过 22 万家零售店将支持Apple Pay。
Apple Pay is the firm’s new payment system compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch.
The mobile system works by holding phone up to a generic card reader and pressing a finger on the TouchID button.
The NFC chip is fitted across the top of the phone.
All details are encrypted and the system stores payment information securely.
It uses the Passbook app and cards that are already on file with iTunes can be saved to it.
Users can also take a picture of their own credit card and add it to the account. This is verified by the card’s bank before being accepted.
If an iPhone is lost, users can suspend all payments via the Find my iPhone service. This won’t cancel the cards, either, because the card details themselves are not stored on that device.
"Apple doesn"t know what you bought, where you bought it, and how much you bought it for,’ said Apple"s senior vice president of internet software and services and reports Eddy Cue.
Starting in US with Amex, MasterCard, and Visa, Apple Pay will also work with banks, and covers 80 per cent of the US, claimed Mr Cue. Apple is said to be "working hard" to bring it to more countries.
More than 22,000 retailers will work with Apple Pay including Macy"s, Bloomingdales, Wallgreens, Duane Reade, Subway and McDonalds. McDonalds is even adding Apple pay to its drive-thru.
Elsewhere, Groupon and Uber will work with Apple Pay.
Third party developers can also make apps for the watch.
Initially, generic notifications will just show up.
But developers can extend that notification with something called WatchKit which gives you notifications of your choice.
The devices were unveiled at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts at De Anza College in Cupertino, the same location where Steve Jobs introduced the original Mac 30 years ago.
